any news on Jarrod Bowen are we interested or not. Many thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware.}

1.) 13 Jan 2020 15:41:03
I think that Wolves were looking at him. Haven't heard of any interest from Saints.



19 Jul 2019 12:18:13
eds any ideas who saints are rumoured to be serious about . keep up the good work.


{Ed002's Note - The efforts are on Amazon right now I am told.}

1.) 19 Jul 2019 18:00:02
Believe saints must sell before they can buy . plenty of deadwood to get rid off.

2.) 22 Jul 2019 11:17:25
So far this season we've spent the following:

Ings - 18m
Adams - 15m
Djenepo - 15m

And we've made the following from sales
Targett - 11m
Gallagher - 5m
Gabbiadini - 10m (money's been spent)

I would imagine that Ings money was already forecast so that wouldn't come out of the pot of transfers this season. Cutting out the deadwood is going to be hard, but he's what we have and what we could end up making.

Austin - 5-8m
Lemina - 20-25m
Stephens - 5-8m
Hoedt - 8-10m
Boufal - 8-10m
McCarthy - 5-8m
Forster - 5-8m
Clasie - 3m
Carrillo - 8-10m
Cedric - 8-10m

So by cutting out these players we could make 100m (I don't think we'll be able to sell half of these) - RH has said he only wants to spend 15m on players, anyone that comes in will be young and cheap. We're building a squad for tomorrow and not for today. I would imagine we already have the players we want in the pipeline, we're just waiting for sufficient funds to do so.

3.) 22 Jul 2019 11:54:23
Sorry Saintjay, I know this is probably personal opinion but there is no way we will get a transfer fee for Forster. It is pretty much common knowledge that saints would happily let him go for free to get him off the wage bill, but there are no takers due to high wage. Think we are stuck with him until contract expires.

I think some of the others would be very optimistic too, such as 8-10M for Hoedt.

4.) 22 Jul 2019 14:05:35
I know I was probably being a bit too optimistic earlier - we've shot ourselves in the foot with our players on their massive salaries. Most first-team players earn over 50k a week and they're simply awful and bring nothing to the club, annoyingly we can't get rid of them to lower clubs because they don't want to take the hit.

I only say this for Hoedt because I've read the rumour that his agent has met with AC Milan about the possibilities for a deal of 10m. But yeah those amounts were just pulled out of the sky and bear no relevance to anything in reality.

I don't think we'll be able to flog our GK's, maybe McCarthy but I can't see FF leaving this summer. I think we'll sell Lemina, Boufal, Austin and Clasie, don't think the others will go though.



08 Jun 2019 21:11:07
Do you think there is any chance of supersaints signing Jean Kevin Augustin who i personally would prefer to Che Adams . Many thanks you do an excellent job.


{Ed002's Note - Probably not GPS.}

1.) 09 Jun 2019 04:30:15
Agree with Ed002 here. Way beyond our reach, both in transfer fee, and the fact that Leipzig qualified for the Champions League as well. Che Adams deserves his chance in the top flight but I do wonder how he'll perform in a team without playing off a big target man like Jutkiewitz at Birmingham.



06 Aug 2018 22:34:13
Danny Welbeck anyone? Any news on this rumour?


1.) 06 Aug 2018 22:58:04
I slate him. But I think he's what we need and would be a great signing. I think we need at least one more in. Another dimension up top. We look woeful at the back, have conceded so many goals in pre-season. We're going to be relying on outscoring the opposition and for that you need more options than Austin, gabbi and long.

2.) 06 Aug 2018 23:30:13
I reckon he'll be too expensive personally.

And I don't mean too expensive for us, just that his asking price will be above of his value. If they're looking for 20-30 mil as I expect they would be, then he's not worth that, and we shouldn't pay it out of desperation.

The big ones I'm surprised we haven't worked harder at (in fairness, maybe we have been) are Dembele and Origi. Both are optimistic but plausible in my opinion.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 20:03:22
I don't think we would get Dembele but Origi possibly has a point to prove and I think he could fit our style of play. Still hoping that we might get Alcacer last minute.



29 Jul 2018 16:10:47
ALLEGEDLY Paco Alcacer interested in a premiership team any idea who that might be . Heard Watford possibly. Hope you can help ED, and thanks for all your hard work you put in.


{Ed002's Note - I don't know who interest him but of the interested sides, Leicester and Southampton offer him the best options. There might be a chance Everton enquired. I am not aware of an approach from Watford but they have enquired about a loan for an EPL forward so they are looking.}

1.) 29 Jul 2018 17:13:44
Many thanks ED.

I take it gaffer has no confidence in Danso or is he injured? .




23 Dec 2018 21:23:49
Like to thank all eds for their hard work and wish all saints fans all over the world a very merry xmas and new year.


{Ed001's Note - thank you on behalf of all the eds and merry Christmas and a happy new year to you all. And it certainly seems a lot merrier and happier on here with the Hutch in charge!}

1.) 24 Dec 2018 17:37:36
Merry Christmas to everyone. Onwards and upwards. We march on.



12 Jun 2018 10:27:53
Like to see Bas Dost with Gabbiadini.


1.) 12 Jun 2018 12:31:45
I agree! Either Bas Dost, or Nicolai Jørgensen from Feyenoord who is very much in the Rickie Lambert mould.

2.) 12 Jun 2018 18:17:07
Really think Dost is a marked improvement on our current strikers?

My first reaction would be no, but I haven't really seen him play. Signing him would basically mean the end for Carillo though, considering their similar styles. Personally i'm not ready to write Carillo off when we've barely seen him in action. All depends what Hughes has been seeing in training though.

3.) 12 Jun 2018 20:28:45
I agree. You can't write Carrillo off that quickly. He came into the squad when we were at the worst part of the season and he wasn't given many chances to impress. I just hope he stays and does well next season so we can sell him on to Liverpool after Firmino goes to PSG or something. :p.

4.) 12 Jun 2018 22:22:28
Carillo showed more than enough in 10 games to prove he has no upper body strength, no foot coordination, no understanding of hold up play and no idea of where other team mates are on the pitch! He is not and never will be good enough to play as a centre forward in the premier league. Our manager, a fine centre forward and footballer, took a week to figure him out and put him in the stands or on the bench to make up numbers. Pellegrinos final act of incompetence was to pursuede the board to part with 19 million pounds on a poor player.

5.) 13 Jun 2018 07:13:51
SaintPaul that’s ridiculous. The guy came in last minute, right before a change in manager. Just because he didn’t set the world on fire from day one, doesn’t mean he ducks, sometimes players take time to settle in and find their role, and unfortunately for Carillo we were in no position to give him that time at the backend of last season.

Yet another example of complete irrationality from Saints fans. That’s the kind of thinking that leads you to ‘do a Chelsea’ and allow quality players to leave without even getting a sniff of the first team. I’m not saying that’s what Carillo is, I’m just saying you have absolutely no clue what you’re talking about when you say that he’s not.

6.) 13 Jun 2018 10:58:16
If I am wrong then I will apologise on this forum, I have watched enough football and played at a high standard to recognise when a player is way out of his depth, maybe Hughes will turn him into a class act, time will tell.

7.) 13 Jun 2018 12:19:09
I totally agree he has looked out of his depth, but then again there is an argument that he hasn't had a chance. I seem to remember Mane taking time to settle, so it could change.

8.) 13 Jun 2018 15:03:55
I watched Mane and Gardos make their debuts v Arsenal, Mane had pace to spare and the ability to walk around good players, he always had promise but I agree it does take time to settle but you must have the ability in the first place.

9.) 13 Jun 2018 16:43:09
He did look out of his depth a little, but well run teams don't give up on record signings after 7 appearances.

10.) 13 Jun 2018 20:52:04
Ok, we’ll agree to disagree as gents and move in. Healthy and impassioned debate is always good, most important is our passion for our beloved SFC.



16 Jan 2018 20:13:49
Guido Carillo not in team or subs bench tonight . Can we read anything into this ed?


{Ed002's Note - No.}



25 Dec 2017 07:41:00
To all eds who do a fantastic job, all saints fans and everyone in the world including those bloody skates . have a fantastic xmas and new year.


{Ed001's Note - cheers gps, Merry Christmas to you and all the others who use the site.}

Sorry but injury prone, hasn't really played for a couple of seasons. and just not the Southampton type. Plenty good strikers out there, do Saints want to go that bit extra and pay the fees.

Well obviously we both bow to your superior knowledge, and fancy making you look at the Mirror site how shameless of us . Please forgive us for even being so stupid as to message anything when we have such informed bright and intelligent people as yourself to make our day go with a smile . gary stones 67 knows nothing about football, life or anything I guess.

After watching saturdays game I can understand that. Been following saints for 58 yrs and if the board can't see we are desperate for a striker then i'm crying because relegation battle here we come.
